PostHeaderIcon The Most Effective NBA deadline Trades of 2016 (2 of 2)

In a three team deal Portland Trail Blazers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Orlando Magic made some moves that for the benefit of tweaking their rosters and cost cutting. The Deal was mainly centered around (PF/C) Anderson Varejao and (PF/C) Channing Frye. The teams involved did not need much by way of trades but all had some benefit to moves that were made.

Portland Trail Blazers receive: Anderson Varejao (PF/C), some cash considerations, and a 2018 first round pick from the Cavs. Varejao would later be waived to free up cash for the team and make them flexible with salary space. He would later sign with the Golden State Warriors.

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: Channing Frye (PF/C) from the Magic. He is a stretch big man who can knock down long range shots and pull defenses away from the basket. That’s a trait there other main players did not have.

Orlando Magic receives: Jared Cunningham (G) who they can develop under coach Scott Skiles as the rest of the core of that young team grows.

The Phoenix Suns made a deal with the Washington Wizards to address their glaring issues they had within the organization. They are the beneficiaries of getting two players for one also.

Phoenix Suns receive: A protected first round draft pick, Kris Humphries (PF) and DeJuan Blair (PF).

Washington Wizards receive: Markieff Morris (PF) who will bring a young big man who will play with intensity and in an area he is familiar with because he has family that lives in the area.

Another three team trade that was done at deadline was between the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls, and Utah Jazz.

Atlanta Hawks receive: 12 year veteran (Guard) Kirk Hinrich from the Bulls.

Chicago Bulls receive: (SG/SF) Justin Holiday from the Hawks.

Utah Jazz receive: (PG) Shelvin Mack
